platinum 12

It's been almost exactly 3 months since I made the jump to blonde.

I had been highlighting blonde since about May, but August 13th I made the plunge and entered the world as a level 11 blonde.

It was strange to me that people didn't seem to notice as much as I thought they would. Of course, that's not the reason I did it. But still, I was suprised when very few people noticed that I had gone all blonde.

Since that point I have had my roots done twice. Once about 6 weeks ago, and then again today. I realized that in order to maintain this color, I really need to do the roots about every 4 weeks. Not much more than that... more than 4 weeks and i really start to feel disgusting... which is unlike me. I usually don't care about stuff like that. But this isn't like high-lights, it's all out inch long brown hair emerging from the top of my head!

The problem with doing my roots every 4 weeks however, lies in the cost. I do not have the fundage to be able to continue going to get my lovely blonde hair maintained. So i decided to do it myself.

I was originally a level 11. However, for reasons I am unaware of, they do not sell level 11 dye at sally's. And since I did not want to go darker, I decided to opt for a level 12.

Let's stop right here for a moment. You are thinking that I royally screwed up my hair and i am about to show you a picture of the hideous outcome aren't you?

I knew it.

You have so little faith in me!

I will have you know, that the color actually turned out quite nicely. It's slightly lighter than before, but it's lovely I think.

(notice: the reason that my face is not included is NOT an accident)

However, the point I am making is not about the new color. It's about people observances of the color.

Just today, before I did the dying deed, I had 3 people comment on my hair color. Saying things such as, "oh wow, your hair is really blonde." or "did you just dye your hair?"

Hmmm... response in my mind to the first: "um, yah, it is. and it has been for about, ohhh, say THREE MONTHS!"

response in my mind to the second: "yes actually. And when I did it, I only dyed the bottom part making sure not to get the inch closest to my head."

Of course I was nice and only said nice things... i would never be sarcastic... that's so not like me.

Here's the most amazing part. Because I know you're probably thinking that the people that have said these things to me are people I don't see very often.

One was my dad.

One was a friend I see multiple times a week.

One was my brother.

There were 2 others who I don't know as well... and that's completely acceptable... but seriously, my mind is kerfuffled. I don't know how I could drastically change my hair color and people not notice for seriously 3 months...

Oh well, like i said before, I didn't do it to get attention. I did it because I like it. And i have NEVER dyed my hair the same color more than twice. Today marks the 3rd time i have done it this color... and I love it! it's the best color i've ever had.
